A 70-year-old man consulted for oligoanuria of 48h duration, and a sudden increase in size of the scrotum. On physical examination he presented an important increase in the volume of the scrotum with skin tension (Fig. 1A).

CT scan (Fig. 1C): Large right inguinal hernia containing the bladder, with an irregular outline compatible with rupture or lesion, and abundant fluid in the sac.

Emergency surgery was performed, that showed a distended bladder herniated in the sac (Fig. 1B). No bladder lesion was found, and a hernioplasty and testicular pexy was performed with a favourable outcome.

Diagnosis: Inguinoscrotal bladder hernia.
